Why is it called "Santa's Escape"? Because it's a CHIMNEY!

You can get some absolutely fantastic pictures from inside the chimney, looking out; walk around the detached block, keeping it on your left - this will bring you over to the Cuckoo's Nest/Psycho Wall areas, and the other entrance to the chimney. Walk to the end of it, and you can see/take pictures of the climber on Santa's Escape.


Walk into chimney approx 15 feet, just past the first large boulder. Climb straight up to top. Both sides of the chimney are on. Easy walk-off.


There is no protection whatsoever on this route; if you fall, and your body doesn't jam to stop you, you're gonna fall a long way. TR is the best option. All gear anchor, using long static line to reach the cracks on top. Use a rope bag to protect the anchor legs.
